  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Yuca Hash Browns:
  • 2 pounds yuca
  • 2 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Steaks:
  • 4 Porterhouse steaks (70 oz Omaha Steaks)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
Preparation
  1. About 45 minutes before serving, prepare the hash browns.
  2. Cut the yuca into 3-inch sections and peel with a sharp knife.
  3. Place in a large saucepan and cover with enough cold salted water to cover the yuca by 2 inches.
  4. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, or until just tender.
  5. Drain and let cool slightly.
  6. Prepare the grill.
  7. Cut the yuca into 1/2-inch dice, removing and discarding any thick fibers.
  8. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until all the fat is rendered, about 3 minutes.
  9. Add the onions and sauté for 6 to 7 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Toss in yuca and cook for 3 minutes longer.
  11. Add the orange juice, lime juice, and 1 heaping tablespoon of the chimichurri.
  12. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until fairly dry.
  13. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  14. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and grill for about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, about 6 minutes per side for medium, or to the desired doneness.
  15. Transfer to warm serving plates, place 1 heaping tablespoon of the chimichurri sauce on each steak, and garnish with the parsley.
  16. Pile the yuca beside the steak, and pass the remaining chimichurri sauce at the table.
Chimichurri:
  1. Place the parsley, oil, vinegar, oregano, garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Before serving, adjust the seasonings as necessary.
